Zeotech Limited (ASX:ZEO)
Proprietary mineral processing technology for the low-cost production of advanced materials ‘synthetic zeolites
Low-cost production of ‘synthetic zeolites’
Leveraging novel and proprietary technology for the low-cost production of ‘synthetic zeolites’ to drive industry partnerships and deliver future production of these advanced materials.
Zeotech has partnered with the University of Queensland School of Chemical Engineering to develop and commercialise proprietary mineral processing technology that consumes kaolin or suitable mine tailings/process residues to produce high-value zeolites.
The technology provides opportunities to monetise broader applications of synthetic zeolites by potentially offering a more cost-efficient manufacturing process than conventional methods.
Improving environmental outcomes
The Company aspires to improve environmental outcomes by continuing to build on the potential of our zeolite mineral processing technology to be applied as a commercial remediation solution for suitable mine tailings/process residues, by utilising tail streams as feedstock and further developing a range of environmental management solutions.
Zeotech’s partnership with the University of Queensland provides the Company with a robust scientific and technical capability, which underpins continued research and new product development.
The Company is developing innovative environmental management solutions for a sustainable future – these include cleantech for lithium refinery residue tailings and economically viable carbon capture and conversion solutions.
The strategy focuses on developing innovative environmental management solutions, which include including cleantech for lithium refineries to commercially manage by-product residue and exploring economically viable carbon capture and conversion solutions, underpinned by low-cost ‘adsorbents and catalysts manufactured using Zeotech’s patent-pending technology.
Synthetic Zeolite – Zeotech aims to become Australia’s first manufacturer of synthetic zeolites and holds novel and proprietary mineral processing technologies, developed by The University of Queensland, for the manufacture (synthesizing) of synthetic zeolites. The patent-pending technologies possess the potential to significantly reduce the cost of manufacturing zeolites, compared to conventional production processes.
Partnership with The University of Queensland – Zeotech values its close working relationship with The University of Queensland (UQ), which through UniQuest is a major shareholder with 6.44% of issued capital.
Kaolin Production – Kaolinite is an industrial mineral belonging to the group of aluminosilicates. Kaolin is an optimal feedstock for Zeotech’s mineral processing technology for the low-cost production of synthetic zeolites
